PRE INSTALLATION RECOMENDATIONS
Virgin hair is the healthiest and purest hair available anywhere in the world, cut straight from one consenting donor. To maximise results, you will need to look after your hair extensions as you would your own. The following steps will ensure your hair looks fabulous for a long time.
COWASHING & WASHING YOUR VIRGIN HAIR - (Applies To Straight & Wavy Hair)
We recommend you wash your hair with quality nourishing conditioner before your first installation. This process will provide your hair with moisture and shine and help to rehydrate your new hair.
Once installed we recommend washing your extensions every 2 weeks or as and when required. This will strip it of any unwanted grease and dust particles and restore it back to its original glory.
MAINTAINING YOUR CURLY HAIR EXTENSIONS
Our Curly Virgin Hair Extensions will give you a natural, full of body luxurious look, however they take more maintenance than our straight or wavy textures. Unlike the other textures, Curly Hair requires extra moisture to ensure that the hair is left conditioned and soft with curls defined.
Washing and Conditioning
Defining the curls
Dryness can lead to frizzy curls. Moisture is the key to maintaining Curly hair regularly.
CHEMICALLY ALTERING YOUR BEYOND HAIR EXTENSIONS
Beyond Hair is 100% Virgin Hair, therefore it can be dyed, bleached, relaxed or permed. We strongly recommend that all chemical alterations be done professionally. Should you decide to try it yourself, we strongly recommend that you carry out a strand test before any chemical processing. Please also note that putting your virgin hair through any chemical process may change the texture, pattern and/or quality of the hair.
Note that relaxing, perming, colouring, lifting or otherwise processing Beyond Hair voids all refund or exchange guarantees.
CARING FOR LACE CLOSURES AND FRONTALS
Lace and silk systems are extremely delicate as each strand of hair is hand tied onto the lace base. As a result of this, it is important that you refrain from excessive pulling, scratching and tugging of the hair as this will result in the hair strands being released from the base.
Due to its delicate nature, its main purpose is for occasional use. Consistent use can reduce the longevity of your lace system. Lace systems are expected to last between 1-3 months depending on usage and how it is maintained.
When washing your lace/silk system, try not to get any shampoo or conditioner on the roots as this may contribute to the delicate workmanship being undone, resulting in shedding or balding.
We do not recommend bleaching/plucking hairs from your lace or silk system as this contributes to ripping and tearing of the base and also shedding of the hairs.
Maintenance of Customised Lace Systems (Frontals)
Our Beyond Hair Lace Frontals come already customised (with baby hair/plucked to achieve a natural looking scalp. However we understand that extra customisation maybe required to achieve the ultimate natural looking hair style
The Customisation process involves bleaching the knots, plucking a natural hairline and tinting the lace colour to best match your skin tone. This process ensures that your lace frontal looks as un-dectable as possible but in-turn reduces the longevity of the frontal.
Lace Frontal Maintenance tips:
After installation a temporary holding gel “Got2be” may be used to secure your Frontal. This hold is temporary and re-application of the gel maybe required to keep the installation secure.
GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND INSTALLING TIPS
When installing weft hair we suggest you sew around the weft rather than through it, as sewing through the weft damages the construction and weakens it which often results in shedding.
Installing lace/silk systems can be done with glue or sewing, it takes technique and should be done by a professional to avoid damage of the system.
Use as small amount of styling products as and when needed as too much will weigh down your hair giving it a limp, greasy finish.
To preserve the style of your hair, your hair should be wrapped, braided, twisted, rolled or pin curled according to the texture to prevent tangling.
Cotton pillow cases can dry out the hair. We recommend sleeping wearing a satin/silk scarf.
It is important not to leave your installs in any longer than 6 weeks to avoid product build up, matting or tangling of your own hair. Remember to always look after your natural hair.
Be sure to protect it with a quality heat protector. For longer lasting results after styling, apply a little amount hairspray.
